I talked to the man today and I have about $5,000.00 left in the budget for new hardware. I know we need at least 2 new PC's. So there is about $1,900-2,100 depending on what I want to do. I also need-want a few upgrades to some PC's. I recommended a server for all our databases, and for backups. Currently the only backups we have are those that I have copied to other PC's with the largest harddrives. And I have no main server, I have about 6Pc's that house different apps. What I was thinking about was $2,200-2,500 for a RAIDed 0+1 server with a tape drive for the final backups. App 500 Gb of storage, and a Intel HT processor. Built by yours truly. Anyone else??????
